Viral Load Toolkit - Introduction
ICAP and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have developed a package of tools to support clinical counseling on viral load and the use of viral load test results to improve patient management.
This toolkit contains:
- A 1.5-day training curriculum on viral load monitoring and enhanced adherence counseling
- A set of viral load monitoring and enhanced adherence flipcharts
- Tools and job aids for health workers
Enhanced adherence interventions are essential to the successful implementation of viral load monitoring and to ensure improved outcomes for patients on antiretroviral therapy.
These tools are easily adaptable for use in a variety of settings.
